  5. Nice crust with the flax, EVOO and oats. Very heart healthy. Like any dried fruits, the tomatoes do pack a lot of residual sugars BUT have a powerful taste punch. πŸ™‚

  6. Fantastic. We do a lot of homemade pizza. One way I get extra nutrients / veggies in is to crush frozen leaves, beet, spinach or Swiss chard and mix with the tomato sauce. Even the adults can’t tell!

  13. I appreciate that you included flax seeds and oatmeal in this recipe! I let Marie know that I really want to follow your recipes. Putting healthy things into my body, after I worked so hard to lose over 45 pounds in my 40’s is important. What we put into our body, as you so know and appreciate, helps our vessels to stay strong and healthy, too! I have a family who has to take anti-cholesterol meds, which horrifies me, due to its side effects! Thanks for this and I will be keeping in touch! Smiles, Robin
